DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS X

Getting development economics right is critical. Slower progress has translated into lowered expectations about what is possible. Research and decision-making must drastically improve.

DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS X is an approach for development economics to boost social impact faster and more effectively

Development Economics X researches and builds economic, social and technological systems inspired by political economy, economic history and related fields. The goal is to provide efficient decision solutions for the private sector, governments, and international institutions throughout (what I call) the economic development stack for faster and better development.

DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS X

The next big dent in global poverty and inequality, harnessing the history and future of development economics

How can standards of living be fundamentally enhanced in a fast-changing world?

Getting international development right is essential for the living standards of billions.

Far too often, inadequate institutions and processes place an unacceptable ceiling on what is possible.

Current experimentation and other rigorous analyses are still unnecessarily slow and also suffer from uncoordinated policy making.

Innovations for rapid experimentation and enhancing institutions at scale must be integrated with a social and historical understanding for transparency, ethics and social impact.

Development Economics X is rigorous consulting for development research and building projects, innovating to get done faster and more effectively and ethically than ever before.
